Star Wars is getting another big set of shows throughout the next few years. Revealed this week, we're getting all manner of new shows through Disney+ alongside a full Star Wars film which is going to be landing in 2023. My favourite announcement though was for The Bad Batch!

Star Wars: The Bad Batch

The Bad Batch follows a group of unique clones that were first seen during The Clone Wars animated series and how they deal with the changing Republic as The Emperor takes over. With the switch The Empire running the show it will be interesting to see just how much The Bad Batch toes the line before realising they need to stick it to "the man". This is an era of Star Wars I've not really delved into but it's great to see a return of the old art style and these characters.

Cassian Andor Returns

Moving over to shows which are live-action, we also got teasers and sizzle reels for a new show which follows the dashing Cassian Andor and his exploits before Rogue One.

It seems like a lot has already been done on this show but there is still quite a way to go before we get to see Cassian Andor kicking ass. However, it's nice to see what they are returning to one of the best Star Wars entries of recent years. Rogue One certainly managed to nail it in many regards.

Rogue Squadron Reporting In

The first big film from Disney for Star Wars post-sequels is going to be Rogue Squadron and it will be helmed by Patty Jenkins who did a sterling job on the first Wonder Woman film.

Fusing together her love of fighter planes and Star Wars, this seems like a pretty darn cool entry into the film series for Star Wars and I am all for a bit of "Top Gun But In Space" fun. It will be a return to the original trilogy era as well one assumes so it will be interesting to see how it all plays out! I have fingers crossed!

Even More Star Wars!

Not content with just giving us a little peek at what's coming up in the trailers above, we also got a lot more news for what else is coming down the pipeline. To start with the Obi-Wan Kenobi show is going to feature the return of Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader although how that's going to work, we've yet to find out. One assumes we'll see some cuts between what Kenobi is up to and what Darth Vader is attempting as The Empire reaches out across the galaxy.

There are also going to be spin-offs from The Mandalorian including an Ahsoka Tano series and Rangers Of The New Republic. Both will take place within the continuity of The Mandalorian and come to a head with a big story moment. Ezra Bridger's return anyone?

We're also going to be seeing a show all about Lando Calrissian and another called The Acolyte which is going to be set during the time of The High Republic. There is even Star Wars: Visions which is going to be focusing in on an anime showing that crosses all manner of different timelines.

One would hope that with all of these new shows we've got to be getting some new miniatures for Star Wars: Legion, right?

So, is that enough Star Wars for you?
